Fans were quick to react to their sweet bonding moment, with many agreeing that Gene looks the spitting image of their late father, Gene Strahan Snr.

Sadly, Michael and Gene's father passed away in September 2020, and at the time Michael wrote a touching statement urging fans to appreciate their family while they still have them.

"The biggest goal in everything I’ve ever done was to make him proud," he said. "Knowing that I did that gives me peace but also pushes me to continue because I know he’s watching from above.

"Without him I’m not sure where I’d be but I know I wouldn’t have anything close to the life I have now. Love you Dad and I’m honored to be your son!!"
